Phone Fix USA’s trained techs have been keeping communication lines open and running smoothly for a quarter of a century, since the ancient art of shouting evolved into the smartphones of today. They repair or replace parts damaged by water, with broken screens, and suffering from dying batteries for brands such as Apple, Samsung, and HTC. They also outfit these devices with accessories from OtterBox and Ballistic, and sell used and refurbished parts and phones to help their guests stay in touch for less.

After customers choose custom frangrances, the professional candlestick makers at Hallow Candle Co. whip up toxin-free soy candles, goat’s-milk soaps, and all-natural salt scrubs that revamp both homes and beauty regimens. Guests can sweeten airs with candles ($3–$23) and reed diffusers ($15–$25), whose aromas of cinnamon bun, lilac, and Chanel No. 5 drift through rooms from 99% recycled glassware. Muscle-relaxing Epsom bath salts ($9–$22) come infused with such hybrid fragrances as white ginger and peach spice up bathtimes as effectively as jalapeño-flavored rubber ducks. Alternatively, hosts can add flickering finishing touches to celebrations with made-to-order event candles (typically $75–$400) and the option to add custom fragrances. Crafty candlemakers design color-coordinated unity candles or waxy beacons with picture settings to celebrate a wedding or a shadow's birthday. Hallow Candle Co. requests at least one month to prepare custom event candles.
The Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box oil filter and up to 5 quarts of motor oil, plus a comprehensive lineup of other vehicle-maintenance checkups, an exterior window wash, and interior floor vacuum. Trained technicians entreat cars to say "Ahh," before quenching automotive thirst with a refill of transmission, differential, transfer-case, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids. A detailed inspection enforces the well-behaved manners of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights. By evenly distributing the weight across each tire, a fresh tire rotation helps to minimize wear and tear, maximize traction, and avoid the need to conceal balding tires with cumbersome toupees. Though Heartland Automotive Services Jiffy Lube sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
At Hair Market Junction, Lyca Loy—with more than 21 years of experience—pampers mitts during the approximately one-hour Shellac manicure by massaging wearied paws before trimming cuticles and filing digit hats. She then tops off claws with a french-manicure Shellac coating or your choice of color, both of which can stay chip-free for several weeks and while bare-knuckle boxing with grizzly bears.
